It's Official: Microsoft to Unveil "Next Chapter" for Windows on September 30 Commented on: 2 days ago (September 16, 2014)

PAUL should do votes!

Windows One
Windows 9
or just Windows?

What do we think? The leaked previews just had Windows, but I bet they'll be discussing it up to the release...

Thinking About Platforms and Ecosystems Commented on: 5 days ago (September 13, 2014)

This is a bit off. An article from 7 months ago is what you reference. Then, as you point out, NYTimes writes for a vastly different audience? In this case, an audience that isn't tech savvy...

Windows 9 Technical Preview Screenshots Leak: An Analysis (Part 2) Commented on: 6 days ago (September 12, 2014)

They can't consolidate, because they need one for tablets and one for the desktop.

Microsoft Belatedly Moves to Fix Windows App Store Commented on: 3 weeks ago (August 28, 2014)

What do you expect? For years Microsoft's Windows OS was marketed on app compatibility. And in that sense, WP is the Mac OS 9 of the mobile world. Lauded for its design, languising in the...

A Charmless "Threshold" with Virtual Desktops? Commented on: 6 weeks ago (August 7, 2014)

Where are the consumer services that you would build a 7"...

Nokia X'd: Microsoft Goes All In on Windows Phone Commented on: 9 weeks ago (July 17, 2014)

This comment shows a real problem. They aren't separate things. Nokia X was a Microsoft platform. Microsoft is an OEM and they need to sell hardware. I don't think their product line...

With SDK Release, a Better Understanding of Windows IoT Commented on: 9 weeks ago (July 12, 2014)

Many applications are not performant, which is why Python is used so often on the FOSS side with things like Pi. For example, a thermostat needs to respond in seconds, not milliseconds. A garage...

Report: Windows, PCs to Rebound in 2015 Commented on: 10 weeks ago (July 8, 2014)

Most consumers most of the time didn't pay that much for Windows apps. Piracy, shareware and for the LAST DECADE web-based apps mean that most 'normals' never paid a significant amount for...
